A few months back my good friend Megan told me that she was expecting her second child. I was so excited for her! Over the next several months we chatted about my husband and I coming out to visit them. As we chatted it started to develop into also doing her maternity session.  That is when my wheels started churning! Megan lives just outside of Seattle and I have always been interested in the rainforest.  Can you see where this is going? I wanted to do a maternity session in the rainforest and it was all starting to come together in my head. The lush green, a white gown. I was envisioning an etherial maternity session and I do believe that I achieved it! It pretty much came together just as I saw it in my head!

Here are a few of my favorites from the session.

I just love when my clients refer me and I LOVE it so much when they refer me to their family! That is how I met the D family.

If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of the people.  ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

When a child is born, you want to offer up the entire world to that tiny being whose life is about to unfold before your eyes. You want your children to have this precious, wonderful world with everything in it- all the love, the beauty, and the marvels of creation at their fingertips. What a legacy. ~ Helen Leah Molnar

Isn’t this what every parent wants? As a new parent you have so many hopes and dreams for your new baby. It is such an amazing time and I am so honored every time I am invited to be a part of it!

Thank you as always for stopping by don’t forget to leave a comment and say hi!

Jennifer Wilcox - Love the grouping there at the end! I would surely have those printed as canvases and hanging in my nursery!!! Lovely!

Cathy Lewis - I love the grouping, adore the b/w one but the first one, with that little smile just stole my heart :-D

Deborah Chetwood - I’m in love with the first photo. I know babies this young aren’t suppose to dream but when you see a pic like that you have to wonder. Beautiful baby and beautiful pics.

Kristin V - What a fabulous post. I love the first image; what a cutie! That smile is to die for :)

Sweet young ones,

I wish for you the chance to learn how to

calm yourselves to look within and know

that even if the world around you seems

crazy, you can find a little palace of peace

inside you. Then, when you walk through the

world, whatever you see can be touched with

the possibility of peace.


~Rebecca Wells


I think that this is the wish of any new parents for their precious new baby. As a mother of two and a life that can get hectic, I can really identify with this wish.  One of the best parts of my job is soothing a baby and getting them into a nice deep sleep and then enjoying the peace that comes. Thank you as always for stopping by to peek at Baby Y.
